| I had such a good time with Katie+Alex at their engagement shoot that I had absolutely been looking forward to shooting their wedding! Katie was all smiles and totally relaxed when I first saw her at the Detroit Athletic Club. The girls were just finishing getting ready and before long it was time for Katie to don her gorgeous gown and meet her handsome groom for their first look. It was a sunny, hot summer day in the city, but the wedding party powered through portraits in that full sun — and it was absolutely worth it! The heartfelt ceremony was held at the always impressive St. Peter & Paul Jesuit Church and it was then time to get the party started back at the DAC. Before we headed back to the venue, we first made a quick pit-stop at Belt Alley for some fun portraits and The Dan Rafferty Band was waiting and ready to rock when we returned. As always the reception room at the DAC looks gorgeous with flowers by Jen House Design, and invitations by R.S.V.P. Following the sweet words of the toasts, we headed up to the rooftop for some sunset portraits overlooking the city, which was my favorite part of the evening. These two deserve nothing but a lifetime of happiness. A huge congrats to this sweet bride+groom!
